Filtered shot noise processes have proven to be very effective in modeling the evolution of systems exposed to shot noise sources and have been applied to a wide variety of fields ranging from electronics through biology. In particular, they can model the membrane potential V(m) of neurons driven by stochastic input, where these filtered processes are able to capture the nonstationary characteristics of V(m) fluctuations in response to presynaptic input with variable rate. In this paper we… 
Nonstationary Stochastic Dynamics of Neuronal Membranes
This thesis investigated key statistical properties of a simplified neuron model under non stationary input from other neurons that results in nonstationary evolution of membrane potential statistics, and considered a passive neuron model without spiking mechanism that is driven by input currents or conductances in the form of shot noise processes.
Nonstationary shot noise modeling of neuron membrane potentials by closed-form moments and Gram-Charlier expansions
Close-form Gram-Charlier density expansions are derived that show how the probability density functions of potentials in multiplicative nonstationary Poisson shot noise models differ from their Gaussian diffusion approximations.

Though the model can reconstruct underlying spike rates and calcium transients from the chaotic neural network well, it does not perform as well at reconstructing firing rates as basic techniques for inferring spikes from calcium data, demonstrating that VLAEs are a promising approach for modelling hierarchical dynamical systems data in the life sciences, but that inferring the dynamics of lower-order systems can be better achieved with simpler methods.
Asymptotic analysis of Poisson shot noise processes, and applications
The Spectrum of Asynchronous Dynamics in Spiking Networks: A Theory for the Diversity of Non-Rhythmic Waking states in Neocortex
It is demonstrated that model networks of spiking neurons with moderate recurrent interactions dynamically change their asynchronous dynamics depending upon the level of afferent excitation, which provides a theoretical foundation for how recurrent neocortical circuits generate non-rhythmic waking states and how these different states modulate the processing of incoming information.
Light/Clock Influences Membrane Potential Dynamics to Regulate Sleep States
It is proposed that membrane potential dynamics created by circadian photoreception and core clock molecules are critical for generating the set point of synaptic plasticity that depend on neural coding that drive formation of baseline sleep architecture, light-driven arousal, and memory processing.

A LiDAR Error Model for Cooperative Driving Simulations
A set of estimated distance traces obtained with a LiDAR sensor is analyzed and a stochastic error model is developed that can be used in cooperative driving simulations and the impact of the model on a set of cooperative driving control algorithms is shown.

This work presents a method to calculate the exact time-dependent moments for the voltage of a point neuron with conductance-based shot noise and a passive membrane and discusses how the analytical results may provide additional conditions for estimating parameters from experimental data.
Synaptic Shot Noise and Conductance Fluctuations Affect the Membrane Voltage with Equal Significance
It is demonstrated that the underlying shot noise caused by Poissonian spike arrival also skews the membrane distribution, but in the opposite sense, and the effective-time-constant approximation is identified as the leading-order solution to the full conductance-based model.
Mean, Variance, and Autocorrelation of Subthreshold Potential Fluctuations Driven by Filtered Conductance Shot Noise
It is shown that for an ensemble of equilibrated conductances but sharp initial voltage (corresponding to a short voltage clamp at the initial time), the mean and the standard deviation can display nonmonotonic time courses.
Gaussian Process Approach to Spiking Neurons for Inhomogeneous Poisson Inputs
This article presents a new theoretical framework to consider the dynamics of a stochastic spiking neuron model with general membrane response to input spike, and finds that the variation of the shape of the membrane response, which has often been ignored in existing Stochastic process studies, significantly affects the firing probability.
A review of the integrate-and-fire neuron model: II. Inhomogeneous synaptic input and network properties
This review considers the model in which the synaptic input varies periodically and is described by an inhomogeneous Poisson process, with both current and conductance synapses, and focuses on the mathematical methods that allow the output spike distribution to be analyzed.
Neuronal Integration of Synaptic Input in the Fluctuation-Driven Regime
It is shown that with a simultaneous increase of excitation and inhibition, the firing rate first increases, reaches a maximum, and then decreases at higher input rates, in contrast to coding mechanisms postulated previously.
An Extended Analytic Expression for the Membrane Potential Distribution of Conductance-Based Synaptic Noise
Extended analytic expressions of the Vm distribution valid for a parameter regime that covers several orders of magnitude around physiologically realistic values should enable finer characterization of the stochasticity of synaptic currents by analyzing experimentally recorded Vm distributions.
A Review of the Integrate-and-fire Neuron Model: I. Homogeneous Synaptic Input
The focus of this review is upon the mathematical techniques that give the time distribution of output spikes, namely stochastic differential equations and the Fokker–Planck equation.
Photoelectron Shot Noise
The instants of time emission of photoelectrons generated by a detector immersed in an optical field constitute a point compound Poisson process. A complete definition of such a process is introduced
This work presents a detailed theoretical framework for statistical descriptions of neuronal networks and derive (1+1)-dimensional kinetic equations, without introducing any new parameters, directly from conductance-based integrate-and-flre neuronal networks, and emphasizes that its kinetic theory is dynamically accurate.
